IONIA, Mich. (AP) - An official with the Michigan Department of Corrections says prison investigators were unable to determine who brought bullets into a maximum security facility in December.

Spokesman Chris Gautz says the investigation has been handed off to Michigan State Police, which will try to find DNA and fingerprints on the bullets found Dec. 9 in the Ionia Correctional Facility.

The Grand Rapids Press (https://bit.ly/1BS7BGE ) reports a corrections officer spotted three bullets inside a sealed breakfast tray before it was delivered to a prisoner’s cell.

Gautz says investigators looked at everyone involved in the food process at the prison during the first three months of the investigation.

Bringing contraband into a correctional facility is a felony offense carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
